Jake's Whitetail Deer Summary
As is true with the vast majority of bowhunters, I cut my teeth on whitetail deer. However, for years, I was always killing bucks in the 100 - 115 inch range because the hunting pressure in my area doesn't allow many deer to get bigger. I could pass on decent bucks, but doing so never meant that they would make it to the next year, so I fell prey to the same mindset as others....take the buck now, because he WON'T be around next year. Then, one eventful day, Pat Lefemine mentioned Kansas to me....and I really can't ever see me missing a season from now on. Not only is the camp camaraderie outstanding, but the number of trophy sized bucks out there is just mind numbing. I must admit, that I have started to hunt my local area a little harder in the past year (because I didn't travel as much last Fall), and as a result I am seeing some nicer bucks. Is it because I have the time to put in more time....or is it because the hunting pressure is decreasing in my area.....? My answer would be 'Yes'. Either way, I see a lot more venison hamburg in my future.....The photo that is shown is a nice 4 1/2 - 5 1/2 year old buck from SW Kansas.
